Paleo Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Bacon & Apples Recipe (Whole30)


1 lb brussels sprouts, washed, tops removed and cut in half
2 tsp olive oil + sea salt to taste (for roasting)
1 medium pink lady apple {or other tart/sweet crisp apple}
4-6 slices nitrate free, sugar free bacon (for Whole30)
1 Tbsp fresh rosemary, finely chopped
additional salt and pepper to taste

  1. For this recipe you will roast your brussels sprouts while cooking the bacon and apples in a skillet on the stovetop.
  2. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Make sure the brussels sprouts halves are uniform in size, if not, cut the larger pieces to ensure even cooking. Toss them with the 2 tsp olive oil + salt and spread out on a parchment lined baking sheet. Roast them in the preheated oven for about 20 minutes, until they’re browning and fork tender.
  3. Core the apple and chop into ½-1 inch cubes, set aside.
  4. Heat a medium heavy skillet over med-hi heat (I love my cast iron for this!) and cut your bacon into one inch pieces (my favorite knife does a great job with this)
  5. Add the bacon to the skillet and cook, stirring until about ¾ of the way done (according to your own preference). At this point, add the apples and chopped rosemary and continue to cook and stir until the apples have softened and the bacon is fully cooked, adjusting the heat to avoid excessive browning if necessary. Remove from heat.
  6. Once brussels sprouts are done, add them to the skillet and toss to combine all the flavors. Sprinkle with more salt and pepper, if desire, and serve hot! This can be served as a side dish or with fried eggs for breakfast. Enjoy!
